            JUDGING CRITERIA

            Judges will be looking for companies or campaigns that can clearly demonstrate success over the past 12 months. Judges are seeking companies or campaigns that have seized challenges and created opportunities and will evaluate entries based on the following criteria: Innovation, Creativity, Consumer Value and Results. 

            Judges will require evidence to substantiate all entries. This can include details of financial performance, specific KPIs, creative evidence in the form of a sizzle reel, campaign images, or links to the final project or related sites. The judges will also consider the structure, presentation and clarity of each entry.

            THE JUDGING PROCESS

            Judges will score each entry prompt and consider any supporting materials submitted. These scores will be combined to give an overall score for each entry. All scores will then be averaged and the highest scoring entries will appear on the shortlist. Note: At least three judges will score each entry.

            CONFIDENTIALITY

            All material will remain confidential to the judges. Only the 'Credits' section of an entry will be made public via the shortlist. If you win a particular category, our team may summarize the entry for posts on Digiday.com. Specific results are never shared. 

             

            FAQ

             

             

            Can I submit from outside the U.S.? 

            Yes, the Digiday Technology Awards are open globally. 

            Can I submit without my client's name becoming public?

            Yes. So long as you leave your client's name out of the 'Credits' section located at the bottom of the entry form, they will not be made public alongside your name. 

            What parts of my entry are made public?

            The only information that is ever publicized is the 'Credits' section of your entry, should you be named a finalist or winner. 

            Should this program be entered like a case study?

            Yes. The suggestion is for this program to be entered from a cast study perspective. So, using our prompts to prove how X client was able to achieve Y through the use of your platform.

            What if my company or a competitor has a judge on the jury panel?

            We recuse judges from scoring any categories their company or a direct competitor submits to. 

            When and how are finalists announced?
